This report covers the present scenario and growth prospects of the global law enforcement biometrics market for 2015-2019. The report presents the vendor landscape and a corresponding detailed analysis of the top six vendors operating in the market. To calculate the market size, the report considers the revenue generated from the sales of law enforcement biometric solutions, including hardware, software, integrated solutions, and services. The report includes a discussion of the key vendors operating in this market.

Biometrics is a technology that measures and analysis physiological or behavioral patterns of humans for authentication or identification purposes. Fingerprints, irises, voice patterns, and the spatial geometry of the face are some of the most widely used characteristics for biometrics recognition process. Physiological patterns include fingerprints, face recognition, DNA, palm print, hand geometry, and iris recognition, whereas behavioral patterns are signature, keystroke dynamics, and voice recognition. The data obtained from these sources are used for security and authentication purposes. Biometrics is mainly used for banking authentication, law enforcement, and providing physical access. It helps provide an extra layer of security for data access and individual identification.

The law enforcement sector gradually replaced Bertillon's anthropometric system of criminal identification, which includes the physical measurements of body parts especially components of the head and face of an individual, with biometric technologies. Fingerprint identification, facial recognition, iris recognition, and DNA analysis biometric technologies are widely accepted by this sector. The adoption of law enforcement biometrics is gaining prominence in several application areas such as identity checks during routine traffic violations, criminal investigations, border control, jail management, and drug and human trafficking.
